5 most luxurious first class cabins you should know about
The Emirates recently revealed its refurbished first-class cabins and upgraded services.
Recently, the Emirates made the headlines because they are upgrading their first class cabins. The announcement was revealed during the Dubai Air Show. As expected, the features bring in collective gasps and awe from the audience.
According to Bloomberg, Emirates partnered with Mercedes Benz and Rockwell Collins Inc. for the refurbished cabins. President Tim Clark reveals that the demand for first class cabins never really waned. The issue before was that the increased the number of seats which made it cramped and uncomfortable for passengers but raked in profits for carriers. Now, the carriers are thinking of ways to revive interest in first-class cabins.
The price of cabins may be exorbitant to some but with improved services and features to justify the splurge, carriers are hoping more people try out their renovated first-class cabins. The upgrades will roll out in the Boeing 777 aircraft and other members of the fleet will follow.
Some of the features include bigger space which is enough for two, floor-to-ceiling doors, ‘zero gravity’ flatbeds, virtual windows, premium chauffeur services from Mercedes Benz and service windows where guests can order drinks and food without opening the suite doors. However, Clark mentions that the bed is fit for only one person to discourage people to misbehave. Clients must be ready to pay $9,000 for round-trip tickets from Geneva to Dubai which the new services will be offered first.
Aside from the improvements that the Emirates have made, here are five first-class cabins you need to know about:
